OUR VISION, MISSION AND VALUES
OUR VISION: Our vision for young carers; is a community where young carers no longer feel they have to care in the shadows, as they are able to develop positive relationships with young people, with whom they share an identity. Young carers will have increased self-confidence and enhanced resilience, which will improve individual emotional wellbeing and provide a foundation for them to build positive aspirations for the future.
OUR MISSION: Young carers will be provided with a safe environment, to gain professional support, whilst having the opportunity to participate in tailored group activities, where they can develop life-skills, gain new knowledge, attend therapeutic interventions and respite opportunities. Kool Carers will work in partnership with young carers, their families and professionals in-order to safeguard, protect and secure positive outcomes for young carers.
